The Quickest & Easiest Way To Eight Best Telescopes Under $1000
* Nikon Eclipse Plastics Mount-mount telescope reflector telescope. I purchased this six inches f/5 mirror online, and I have to say that it is pretty amazing. Very easy to use, the mirror has no neck, making it very easy to get into tight places. The price is not cheap, but for a beginner, this is definitely a great pick. There is also an optional hood that adds another four inches to the length of the mirror.
* Zeiss Contour Reflector Telescope with C-mount and AI-mount. This is probably my favorite model, because of how versatile it is and how nice its image quality is. The Zeiss Contour Reflector Telescope has a very nice weight, easy to use controls, an accurate parallax adjustment, and an eight inch pupil that are very shallow. For under a thousand dollars, this is about the most affordable model available, and the build quality is excellent. It also has an easy-to-use manual focusing screen.
